When it comes to the security of your home, your front door is of paramount importance. After all, it’s the first point of entry into your home. Conventional door locks using deadbolts and physical locks have been around for nearly two centuries. Yet, they are far from perfect.
Duplicate keys, physical tampering, lock picking, lost or misplaced keys – are some of the security pitfalls with traditional lock and keys.
With the advance in technology, home security today has a range of devices that offer you “maximum security at minimum hassles.” And, one such device is the biometric door lock that is part of the access control system for a home.
What are Fingerprint Door Locks?
As the name implies, these locks use fingerprints to provide entry. It consists of a fingerprint scanner, where you have to place your finger. The system then scans and unlocks the door, if your fingerprint is recognised.
As no two individuals have the same fingerprints, it’s impossible to gain illegal entry. Additionally, these locks have added security features like alarms that ring if someone tries to tamper with the system. Thus, it offers you the next level of home security.
Here, are the top reasons why you should consider switching to a biometric lock for your home:
- Hassle-Free Keyless Entry
Imagine these scenarios: You arrive home after grocery shopping with nearly half a dozen bags. Now, comes the moment of panic. You can’t remember where you left your front door key. You arrange all your shopping bags at your front door and scout around your handbag for the key. You cannot find it there. You begin to panic. You then rush down to your car to see if you have left the key on the dashboard.
Only after several trips to and fro, you realise that the key has been in your pocket all the time. Have you ever faced this situation?
With Eurovigil’s fingerprint door lock, you no longer have to carry around the key to your front door. All you have to do is place your finger on the scanner in the lock, and the door unlocks automatically. This is a huge benefit for people who have the habit of misplacing or losing keys regularly.
- No Need To Replace The Entire Lock for a Lost Key
One of the biggest drawbacks of conventional door locks is that you have to replace the lock very often. No matter how careful you are, there are plenty of instances, where you or a family member loses a key. Also, if you lose a key then it’s recommended to change the entire door lock to prevent misuse of the lost key.
This is not only time-consuming but also expensive. With keyless entry you no longer have to deal with the pressures of lost or misplaced keys.
Unlike conventional locks that can be easily picked or broken, a digital fingerprint lock is tamper-proof. Made of high-grade steel, these are robust and durable. Digital locks withstand extreme weather like rain, heat, dust and even snow.
